Skiing/Snowboarding

Nojiri Lake Resort is located right in the middle of various famous ski slopes. In almost every direction from the hotel there is a ski slope within 10 to 20 minutes by car. Last season the Resort was full of all sorts of interesting people during this season; beginner skiiers, professional skiiers, families with kids needing extra support for beginners, people just wanting to get into the snow, and on and on.

For those wanting to go skiing/snowboarding, the Resort can help you in the following ways:

  • Rental equipment: We can help you get the equipment you need for skiing and/or snowboarding. This equipment includes, skis, snowboards, boots and other related equipment, clothing; jackets, gloves, hats ect. View price chart.
  • Lift Tickets:
  • Every year ticket prices vary with special package deals. Ask us about them.
  • Each slope has its own price list, as about these as well.
  • Transportation to the slopes:
  • If you have your own vehicle then all you will need are directions. Ask us.
  • Those without vehicles need not to worry, the Resort has a “go and come” pick-up service. We will get you to the slopes and pick you up. And, many times this vehicles circles around and allows stops at the local 7/11 and/or restaurants for special request by individuals. There is a 500 yen fee/day for this, and it does require some advanced notice so staff can plan for it. (These “go and come” pick-ups are for the following slopes; Akakura, Ikenodaira, Suginohara, Kurohime, Tangram, Madarao. Also, the times fluctuate depending on road conditions and numbers of people at each location.)



PowderHounds is also a great resource for finding ski slopes in the area, with up-to-date information regarding snow conditions, difficulty level, directions, etc.


Bicycles

For those guests wanting to borrow a bicycle for a short ride up to the 7/11 or even a ride around the Lake, the Resort may be able to help you with our fleet of bicycles. Please ask at the front desk for times and availability.
The bicycles will require your checking the brakes, adjusting the seats, and maybe even putting air in the tires. They are not brand new, so any one borrowing them needs to understand that there may be some difficulties.
Those that borrow them understand the following:

  • The bicycles and any equipment related to them, will be replaced to the original location when finished using them.
  • Any damage to the bicycles will be the responsibility of the borrower.
  • The Resort can not be responsible for any damage or accidents when using the bicycles.

Fishing

Nojiri Lake is quite well known for its sports fishing. There are various types of fish in the lake.

In the summer “Black Bass” is definitely the most sought after. There are other fish as well, in this season such as trout. There are two means for fishing these Bass, the first is to rent a boat, and the second is fishing from the side of the lake. Those people wishing to rent a boat will then need to decide what level of boat they want and/or will be allowed to rent. Boats that need licenses are the ones with motors, while boats that are paddled or peddled can be rented without a license. Rates for these depend on the Rental Fishing Boat companies that can be found all around the waterfront. Also, for those that don’t have equipment, this can be rented as well. Please ask at the front desk for which company is legally operated.

In the winter, “Wakasagi” is pretty much the only fishing excitement on the lake. This fish is fished in large heated boats that have troughs open into the lake water on both sides of the inner room of the boat. The person fishing will sit on a straw mat a good number of other participants, and extend their miniature fishing rod over the trough so that the bait may drop into the lake water. Wakasagi are known for being a delicacy in Japan, however, they are very small, so anyone looking for reeling in a gigantic catch may find this sport “different”. Also, the boats leave early in the morning from the various piers and don’t return until 3:30 in the afternoon, unless the boat owner has made special arrangements with you.

Requirements:

  • You MUST purchase a daily fishing license!
  • If you are out on a boat all day you may get sun-burned, be prepared.


Ask at the front desk for more information. Nojiri Lake Resort does not rent any fishing equipment but we do know where to go to get started.

    Get in Touch

Large Group Events

Overnight Conferences, Seminars, Private Gatherings, Company Trips

Nojiri Lake Resort is now taking reservations for group programs needing private facilities with economical costs. The “Resort” fits up to 46 people for overnight stays. Book the whole “Resort” and use the dining room for meetings, lobby for gatherings and deck/waterfront for private parties etc.


Food Services

All three meals each day can be prepared by our team here at the resort or your group can indulge in handling the cooking, if so desired.


Transportation

Presently, if your group comes by car then there is very little for our team to help you with other than when your group may want to have some drinks and needs to have delivery and pick-up from local restaurants. However, if you are coming by train, we can work on programs for transporting your group in and around the area if needed. Or, we can help you rent cars. Lets us know your desires and we will help you figure them out.


Costs

Generally speaking, all large groups received a discounted room rate. The amount of the discounted rate depends on different factors such as; total number of people, use of the kitchen, use of the dining hall/lobby/water-front, and the deck. It depends on if you intend to rent the whole facility or partial, and/or whether you need private areas or simply can share with other guests at the hotel. Other factors would be transportation requirements, food services and any further options.
